Heather Townsend

Biography

Heather is always up for a challenge. Perhaps this is why she specialises in, predominantly, helping accountants, lawyers & consultants market and sell themselves. Either to profitably grow their practice, take the final step up to partner or create work-winning conversations with new clients. You know, the really difficult bit, how to actually kick the door down to get a meeting with a potential client.

She’s an award-winning author of 4 books, ‘The FT Guide To Business Networking’, ‘How to make partner and still have a life’, ‘The Go-To Expert’ and ‘Poised for partnership’. Her books have sold over 20,000 copies globally and been translated into over 6 languages. 

In fact, over the last 12 months Heather has supported her clients to build their profile, differentiate themselves, grow their reputation, and in the process add over £2 million in fees to their client portfolio, and often make partner in the process.

Heather is a high profile member of the accountancy profession in the UK. In 2015 the ICAEW declared that Heather was the number one online influencer for the accountancy profession. In 2017 GetApp decided Heather was a top 5 global influencer for small accountancy firms. She has worked with over 300 partners, coached, trained and mentored over 2000 professionals at every level of the UK’s most ambitious professional practices. Her articles appear regularly in the UK national and trade press, including The Financial Times, Accountancy Age, The Sunday Times and The Guardian.

Testimonials

"I’ve heard Heather speak to our MBA students and alumni in person and virtually many times now. She always manages to engage her audience and leave them motivated to take action. Her IP is fresh and always easy to “get” and her use of stories and humour are really valued by her audiences. I was amazed how she had a recent audience of 170 MBA students, many of whom were beyond tired and jet lagged at the end of the day, eating out of her hand. If you are a business school or professional services firm looking for a speaker on networking, becoming a ‘Go-To Expert’ or ‘How to make partner’ then I can highly recommend Heather."

Sarah Jackson, Careers Manager, Part-time MBA Students, Warwick University Business School

"Heather and her team made it so easy to work with them and put on the event. They were responsive to all our requests and prompt at communicating with us. It really felt like we were “one team”. Nothing was too much bother for Heather and her team. Heather provided unique content to help us generate buzz before the event with our ideal audience, and emailed her list to increase attendees to the event. The response was so positive to both events that we have taken out full page press advertisements as a result of the event to carry on the conversation with delegates and keep the momentum going."

Yukie Chan, Former Marketing manager, Pro-Group
